Florida's Full Service Schools: A Case Study of Three Oversight Committees.
Reynolds, Joseph E.
In Florida, the Full Services Schools model has emerged as an alternative to fragmented service delivery because service providers have assumed that children have needs beyond classroom education and that Florida's system of service delivery has failed to meet those needs. The purpose of this multiple-site comparative case study is to describe and examine the governance structures of three full-service-school sites in three Florida counties. The framework is drawn from the theory of A. H. Van de Ven (1976) for assessing the development and maintenance of interorganizational relations. Data were collected through study of documents, site observation, and interviews with 42 selected participants. Differences and similarities in interorganizational relations are identified in the areas of (1) systems-oriented change; (2) membership of the oversight committees; and (3) collaboration, coordination, and cooperation. Recommendations are made for future research and for the development of policy and practice. (Contains 60 references.) (SLD)
